Description

This letter, dated March 26, 1956, from Three Affiliated Tribes Tribal Chairperson Martin Cross to United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick addresses the group from the tribe who oppose US Senate Bill 2151 (S. 2151). Cross claims that this group is opposed to the bill because of the wording that says that the secretary may require that a person use their share to pay a debt." Cross indicates that the people in this group have debts and encloses ledgers to that effect. Cross expresses his support for the bill, even though it is imperfect.
